Lagos fashion and Design Week 2015

HK-LFDW-Schedule-HiRes-copy1Heineken Lagos Fashion & Design Week 2015 wrapped up yesterday and undoubtedly is one of the successful fashion weeks in Africa. What about HLFDW 2015, you may want to ask… here’s the history –

This year marks the 5th anniversary of Lagos Fashion and Design Week; a dynamic initiative that remains dedicated to the growth and promotion of creatives in the industry. An integral part of the platform is LFDW Fashion Focus, a joint collaborative effort of Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week in partnership with British Council, continues to reward and present opportunities for emerging talents to harness their skills and ensure they sustain a global presence to a wider audience.

LFDW Fashion Focus is identified through its exceptional creative workshops and mentorship capacity building programs, inclusive of professional business development as a tool to facilitate innovation, growth and commerce.

Selected finalists will be offered opportunities to participate in targeted workshops and exhibit their collection in front of a select audience at the Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2015 showcase from October 28th – October 31st, 2015.

This ties in with British Council’s ongoing work to empower creatives through high-quality events and collaborations that link artists and cultural institutions in Nigeria with their counterparts in the UK.
